Is hair loss worrying you?
Hair loss is becoming more common in younger population. While factors such as stress, illness, harsh chemicals, and pollution can cause hair loss. The most basic and primary reason is often neglected and brushed aside.
Not just mere accessory, your hair is a reflection of your health. So if you are losing a lot of hair, then the first question you should be asking yourself is ‘am i eating the right foods’.
Nutrition plays a vital role in how your hair looks and feels. Although the hair that comes out of the scalp is practically dead, the hair follicle that is located deep inside the scalp is very much alive. So if you are not eating the right foods, and as a result not supplying the follicles with the nutrients they need, your hair will suffer. The hair that grows out will be finer and fragile, and it can break off or fall out prematurely.
Besides, any deficiency in your body will first hit your hair. It’s because hair is a non-essential part of your body – meaning it’s not necessary for your survival. Nutrients will be taken from less important areas such as hair follicles, nails to feed the more important parts, such as organs.
If you have noticed, people who are crash dieters, and people who have poor eating habits (like those who survive on crisps and sodas) generally have thin dull hair. And in extreme cases of malnutrition, your body can stop producing hair completely to conserve energy for more important bodily functions.
But the good news is that if you start supplying your hair with more oxygen and nutrients, your hair will get better and also start growing back – although there can be a lag time of few months before you start to see new growth.
